What types of Midface Lifting are Available?

Surgery:

A surgical midface lift is done alongside a lower eyelid lift or surgery. Dr. Morris will perform the procedure by making incisions along the eyelid to access components of the midface. She will then safely and effectively suspend them to a more natural and youthful position. Patient downtime is rarely longer than that of a typical lower eyelid surgery. There may be pain and swelling in the midface area for several weeks following the operation.

Non-Surgery:

Increasing the volume of the midface area will oftentimes correct the situation in patients that don’t require a surgical operation. Products that can be used are fillers, which are typically used by Dr. Morris when the midface descent is mild and less severe. The main advantage of the non-surgery type procedures is the level of safety and shortened down time.
